Description

An early pictorial map of Newport Beach.

Decorative promotional map of Newport Harbor and Newport Beach, California, issued by the Newport Harbor Chamber of Commerce. The pictorial map shows Newport Beach from its southern jetty (which produces its world-famous surf wave The Wedge) through to Newport Pier. The various islands of Newport Bay are also shown. An inset of Greater Los Angeles is provided.

Below the map are a number of lively vignettes, showing the activities which can be conducted in Newport Beach including deep sea fishing, "surf bathing," and horseback riding on the beach. Six types of sailboats are shown at the top of the map. The verso includes numerous photographs of these activities. Text advertises the benefits of living in Orange County, with suggestions of the living costs, the types of houses for sale, and the all-year climate, alongside other advertisements targeted at those just interested in visiting.
